the candidates stand on issues that relate to the latino community in particular. we size up issue by issue how barack obama and mitt romney plan to tackle these key american challenges, but before we get to those, here's a look at top stories making news today. >>> we start with a deadly shooting on an alabama college campus. a campus police officer shot and killed an 18-year-old freshman at the university of south alabama overnight. school officials say gilbert call lar was naked and acting ear rattically. he confronted the officer and rushed him stooimpls and ignored warnings. they say the officer shot the young man in the chest once. his friends say they're shocked at what happened. >> you could ask anyone that knew him. he was a great, loving guy. always made people smile. is not the kind of guy that people knew him and said he would do something like this. >> cnn legal contributor paul cowl lan says alabama law may come into play in this case down the road. >> alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has. so do you know that the officer in this case can
's the first national monument since the 1700s to horne the latino. the latino vote is heavily skewed towards the president, but the issue is enthusiasm. we know this visit today in california with this national monument is a big one for the president. as for governor romney, he took direct aim at president obama's handling of foreign policy during his speech at the military institute in virginia. it's the tenth foreign policy speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region, and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east alied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> let me bring in the "news nation" political panel. chris and michael and jonathan and communications r
said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that

[ obama ] i'm barack obama and i approved this message. >>> just look at me. okay. many in our area will gather at the -- you don't have to do it
remains when it comes to the support of latinos. something to do with the governor's less than clear immigration position. remember this? >> if you don't deport them how do you send them home. >> the answer is self-deportation, people decided they could do better going home because they can't find work here because they don't have legal documentation to allow them to work here. >> we will discuss romney's trouble with hispanic voters and what might be the biggest forgotten issue or second biggest on your list, coming up next. m only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

daughter is co-director, tells the story of five black and latino teenagers. they were convicted of raping and brutally beating a white female jogger in new york's central park in 1989. >> it was this huge media story. there was a lot of coverage, but everyone got it wrong at that time. >> she was hollering, help, help. >> reporter: the five teenagers confessed to the crime after what they said was an unfair interrogation. they were charged even though none was a match for a dna sample found at the scene. turns out it belonged to this man. >> he commits at least five more rapes that we know of after the central park jogger. >> reporter: but the serial rainest did not confess until after the five teens already had served sentences ranging from seven to 11 years. a judge threw out the convictions. >> the verdicts have been set aside in their entirety. >> yeah! >> reporter: a victory for the five men. yousef salam, now 38, was one of them. >> after being exonerated, it's almost like somebody running free through the grass and just throwing their hands up yelling a-ha. >> reporter: harder to o
%. president obama's pathway to re-election is difficult even with the latino and african voters across the country. why is president obama 36% among white voters and what can he do to up that number? >> i think that he needs to focus on job creation and lay out what he did to save the country from the great depression. certainly emphasize on what he did to stave the automobile industry. that's what is holding blue cole sxar white voters in the state of ohio. i have to tell you this, luke. only in mitt romney's mind is a path where he sits at 206 electoral votes right now and the president sits at 246, more favorable position to be in. we have got to get to 270. that's the part of the campaign we are in right now. any normal person would prefer to be in a posture where even according to nbc we are at about 246 right now. we are ahead in ohio. we are very strong in virginia. where we have a great cincinnati candidate in tim kaine and will win nevada. the only thing the folks in romneyville are doing is they are moving forward with a confidence gain. they are walking around talking about
is interested in the economy, most of the polling shows that latino, asians, who expect to be interested in something different are seeing economy as a top issue. i think as latino and asian voters and other minority voters, what we want to hear about what does this data mean to me, to the bottom line. i'd love to see that happen in the debates. the actual voter. how is the dream going to be accessible to be. >> which is what biden does really, really well. >> you know what's interesting, melissa, stepping back for a minute, part of the problem with the debates and the natural discussion, we tend to agree with what the facts are. we can't agree what the structural issues are. if we can't agree that this number is the number under the deficit or this platform is the platform for taxes, how can you have a substantive debate? >> the republicans have actively attempted to say that numbers can be manipulated. >> sure. >> we had 7, 8% job numbers. i do think if we're going to have -- we have to have agreement about what constitutes evidence. >> that's my point about why i think biden is a much
-american latino voters will show up like they did in the past. more importantly there is all the talk about polls and the likely voters and talk about registered voters. we can talk about actual voters. if you look at places like ohio where voting started today, the democratic coalition is turning out in force. you are seeing more voting in precincts that went for obama than those who went for mccain. we are seeing people aren inning gauged and showing up to vote. >> if democrats are trailing in party id and if republicans come out big and have a huge turnout, what will that mean for the president and his chances of winning a second term? >> i will say two things on that. going back to the point i made earlier, people are turning out early to vote. look at the battle ground states 1k3* almost always have early voting states. colorado, iowa, florida. the numbers of people are casting votes and they don't match the numbers that we have seen. and more importantly, look, it is a trick that this comes down to a set of states and we talk about how we will win the presidency. if you look across the boar
color. maria theresa kumar is president and ceo of vote latino and professor james peterson is professor of african studies at lehigh university. mitt romney's record may be instructive. as governor of massachusetts he gutted affirmative action in the dead of night, during a holiday, without any consultation whatsoever. is this an example of how minorities would fare under a president romney? >> i think it's also indicative just yesterday "the wall street journal" asked mitt romney if he believed in affirmative action, he couldn't answer yes on no, he kept quiet. if he can't give a straight answer on an issue that's not a campaign issue is incredibly telling. this issue before the supreme court, it's supported by 17 senators both democratic and republican. the military is in support of it, as are a lot have business leaders. fortune 100 companies. they are support ty because they recognize demographics are changing. as americans we should make sure we have a fair shot at the american dream, through our educational system. >> absolutely. professor, we know where mitt romney stands. as for
and party so ail len yated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. why shouldn't the campaign want that part, a blupt comment comm is true and will matter come election night? >> it's actually very similar to something he said before. >> absolutely. >> a year ago at univision forum where he talked about how he would run against republicans and said essentially all he would have to do is run debate clips from the republican presidential primary and the republicans were saying things about illegal immigrants and things like that and saying sort of -- not necessarily disparaging comments but framing them in a way that might not be to people's likings and interesting. i think they tried to have it off the record and speaks to both campaigns overly cautious in the last 13 days. >> yeah. >> they don't want to draw attention to anything that will turn in to a twitter moment, a youtube moment. so that i think is really what is behind this but i think ultimately it's pretty harmless comment. >> yeah. >> that he made. and a true comment. >> he said it's not a rela
this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up
the middle of the road or the latino voters? >> geraldo, i think it will be important for him to talk about immigration reform and have a balanced approach of cutting down the time that we have for applications and people coming to the united states legally. i think he has to make sure he is enforcing the laws and as you know the big issue for virginians are going to be the defense cuts and i think that is what governor romney is going to sell and i think that is ultimately what is going to help him win the commonwealth of virginia. >> geraldo: what about the latino vote, though, congressman? i underand it that defense is a huge, huge issue in the commonwealth where there is so many defense facilities. but there are substantial number of latinos there, particularly around the disdistrict of columbia. if he talks tough, first of alllet me ask you this. i withdraw that statement. the governor said he will not repeal president obama's temporary dream act measure where he gave a pass, a two year visa to those students you know story who were brought here as children. do you regret that governor
in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut out for us. it's cut out for them, too. that's what elections are all about. >> thank you very much, mr. mayor. i know you're out there at the campaign event where the president is going to be speaking later. you just gave your speech, and thanks for joining us today. >> thank you, andrea. sorry we were a little late, bu
of the sample. president obama was on the west coast today courting latinos, and he gave some remarks about the state of the economy and how it affects latinos. >> no matter who you are and what you look like or where you come from, this is the place where you can make it if you try. today we have more work to do to fulfill that promise. the recession we're fighting our way back from is still taking a toll, but thanks to the strength and character of american people, we are making progress. >> now, of course, latinos are one of the reasons president obama has been doing well in some of the western states like colorado, nevada, new mexico, as well as florida. we now have to see gin the smift in polls whether he can continue to remain on top and it sets up the vice presidential debate on thursday between paul ryan and vice president joe biden, larry. >> all right. i'm looking for some rock 'n roll in that debate, john. >> you'll get it. >> many thanks to john harwood. let's get right to the distinguished panel. former assistant secretary of defense larry corps who worked in the reagan adminis
. lizz winstead, let's take a look at your super pacs video on mitt romney and latinos. >> my dad, you probably know, was the governor of michigan and the head of the car company and born in mexico. had he been born of mexican parents, he might have had a shot. >> actually, mitt, that is so true. the advantage is obvious. people of hispanic presidents, to jorge bush. ultimately for you, mitt, you were cursed with the hard knock life of growing up as the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive? but the truth is, the reason why latinos aren't voting for you is because your policies suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election. but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> whoa. that's tough stuff. that's kind of a hard-edged shot. that's a shot at romney. i mean, his parents weren't in mexico because -- they were there because of piligamy and the problems of living in the united states. there it is. not getting into all of that. but the point is, what's the point of the joke? it wasn't funny to begin with. do you think you guys made it funny? >> t
at your superpac's first video with actress rosie perez on mitt romney and latinos. >> that, you probably know, was the government of michigan, head of a car company, but he was born in mexico. had he been born of mexican parents, i'd have a better shot at winning this. >> actually, mitt, that is so true. the advantage is obvious. think of all of our hispanic american presidents from jorge washington, to jorge bush. fortunately, for you, mitt, you were cursed with the hard knock life of growing up as the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive? but the truth is, the reason why latinos aren't voting for you is because your policies suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election. but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> whoa. that's tough stuff. mick, we haven't had you on before. liz has been here before. i want you first. that's kind of a hard-edged shot. that's a shot at romney. i mean, his parents weren't in mexico because they were -- they were there because of polygamy and the problems they were having living in the united states. that's all
like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got
his very harsh position on immigration, a position that is quite anti-the interest of latinos in florida. >> in fact, the numbers are overwhelming for the president still. >> no one has been hurt in america by this president's economic policies more than hispanics. 15% unemployment. almost 50% of college graduates of hispanic origin can't get a job. jobs and the economy are the number one issue for hispanics, and frankly, they don't want four more years of this. >> would you concede that in the hispanic community, latino community, that there is a feeling that republicans are very harsh in their -- and that hurts the republican party? do you concede that? >> i think politics, frankly, between you and i, i think democrats have done a lot better job, and republicans have. this will be the last election that a republican will win the presidency unless generically speaking, the partyoes a better job -- >> but -- >> but mitt romney is doing a great job. mitt romney has gotten over 40% of hispanic vote in florida. that's plenty to win the state. he will hold on to that, and there wi
nationally. however, the same poll shows among latinos the president sup by an even bigger margin, 45 percentage points. which demographic is more important to who finally wins, ari? >> i don't know. i mean, i think these elections depend a lot on turnout. is somebody laughing? pundits are allowed to say they don't know when it's true, right? >> i think that's right. that's right. >> points for honesty. >> the main question that's implied in your premise is what is mobilization going to look like, and we have had unusual mobilizations recently in the last time obama was running. we had above average turnout among young people, among african-americans, and among latinos. if those trends continue, it's not just about the gap, it's about who turns out. and you couple that with the ground game this campaign has over 13 million people on an e-mail list, a direct way to mobilize supporters, and they have been doing it quite frankly, a lot longer than the challenger, and they may be able to turn out the very people who support them more, latinos and increasingly suburban women. >> okay. well
. campaign says a deeper look also shows an uptick in latinos and young people. >>> more than half of california schools met the state-wide academic achievement award. the score is calculated from different state standardized tests. the route says middle school students made the highest grades followed by high school and then elementary students. >>> just a day after a warning from firefighters it appears the fire starter has struck again in a garbage truck. this ises ninth fire in two -- is the ninth fire in two weeks. so far only trees and fences have been damaged but neighbors are concerned the fires could get worse. >> the next day i came, it was all burned. that was the first fire, all of that stuff burned. they clean that out, the dumpster was replaced and then another fire and then another one. >> yesterday morning firefighters went door to door handing out fliers about the arson, they are doing extra patrol. a small earthquake hit just off the coast of san francisco this morning, the magnitude 2.4 quake struck at 7:01 a.m. the usgs says it was centered west of the -- west o

-american thing but immigration. we tend to think about this immigration question as purely a latino question. it's not just for latinos, but it's for africans of can descent who are here and also having problems. >> anthea, i want to show you this commercial that's running that's intended to draw a wedge between african-americans and the latinos. >> i'm tired of the staur owe types that african-americans doan want to work. i god laid off and i've got mouths to feed. i need a job. what i doens understand is why they're going to immigrant millions of workers when 3 million black americans can't find work. do they really believe black americans don't want to work? let's slow down mass immigration and save jobs for americans, paid for by numbersusa.org. this is not a romney ad or obama hand but that's basically a jes jesse ad. >> i think that it's important that americans not be persuaded by this ad or fall into this trap. it's very interesting that the ad would say the reason why african-americans don't have jobs is because of immigrants instead of talking about our educational system, instead of t
and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a whole has become more hispan hispanic. colorado is 18% latino. that's up from 11.8% in 2000. the question is whether they cast ballots this time around. so how do voters in denver's swing suburbs known for being independen
, south america, immigration. the latino vote has gone overwhelmingly in every poll for the president. president obama, 70%. mitt romney, 25%. this vote, if it comes out -- particularly if it comes out this lopsided, could be critical in some of the key swing states. >> absolutely. and in this case, turnout is what matters. this is where the democrats get out to turn votes are key. you want the latino vote out there for him. romney did not do himself any favors in the primaries and has not made up much ground. the key is getting these voters to the poll. >> how would you get them out, jamal? >> i think the democrats -- i was down in tampa a couple of weeks ago and i saw what they were doing in terms of volunteers and they are telling me that they have better votes than in 2008. they are confident about what they are going to do. what happened last night that i thought was funny was how mitt romney talked about mali. he kept going back to mali as if someone gave him that fact. i felt like i was listening to myself in children filling college and filling myself. he was pouring himself i
, women -- 4 in 5 are youth, women, african-american or latino. >> well, what the minority proportion of the electorate is could be the key to the election. whites were 74% in 2080. that number has come down in each of the last five presidential elections. if it keeps coming down, that's huge for obama because he's dominating african-americans and they have a high turnout propensity. latinos he's dominating but they show less interest in the race. young voters show less interest in the rate. with erlarly voting, romney's ahead by 15 points among people who say they're going to vote election day. how do the two things wash out? i do think it's clear that obama has an advantage electorally. i don't believe mitt romney has momentum anymore. it hadn't been prv tonigoven ob got a surge going, could be very slight but this thing is close. the purpose of the momentum argument that the romney people are making is there's something called a bandwagon effect in politics and people want to be on the winning side. so there's a sense of -- it's not a huge effect but it's something, if they get tha
-american americans, and look at that, latinos are pulling ahead of african-americans. do you think they're lazy, violent, etc. sometimes the numbers improve in some categories and regress in other categories. the implicit one is for a quick second show the picture of a white person, black person, latino person and then show you a neutral person and ask you about the neutral person. if you come up with negative comments, and you're shown an african-american, it gives a sense of how they feel about african-americans. it's a fascinating study and it's the way that a lot of studies are done. interesting number. if you think we have gotten past racial feelings in america you're wrong. we didn't. and now the religion of president obama. what are the latest numbers? in 201026% thought he was protestant, which by the way is the correct answer. now we're up to 28% getting it right for the president of the united states of america. but unfortunately in the last two years more people think he's muslim up to 18% thinking he's muslim, and then 35% saying, i don't know man he's only president of the united s
